As we discussed in the last week, The screencast project is going on. Adding to that, Praveen brought a spoken-tutorial video about audacity and ffmpeg. We learnt the audio and video editing and dubbing to the video using Audacity GUI application and splitting the audio and video and merging them with each other using ffmpeg command. This video is created by  spoken-tutorial project team.

After that, Mr. Shrinivasan shared the information about Lab Manual preparation for Anna University Syllabus which was happend at MIT, Chrompet on 5th March.

He explained an application called asciidoc, which was so helpful in preparing Lab Manual.

AsciiDoc is a text document format for writing notes, documentation, articles, books, ebooks, slideshows, web pages, man pages and blogs. AsciiDoc files can be translated to many formats including HTML, PDF, EPUB, Unix man page.

It is easy and faster way to write a documentation. To know more about asciidoc, read this link http://www.methods.co.nz/asciidoc/.
